Episode 34 features two films that seem, on the surface, to have only David Carradine in common.  The connections go deeper though, since both films were originally slated to star Bruce Lee before his untimely death in 1973. We start with 1978s Circle of Iron, AKA "The Silent Flute". This film has quite an impressive cast, including Mr. Carradine, Roddy McDowall and Christopher Lee and Eli Wallach in a thoroughly bizarre role. It tells the story of Cord the Seeker who seeks to defeat the wizard Zetan and gain the book of knowledge. Originally written by Bruce Lee and James Coburn
as a means to spread the ideas of Zen Buddhism to the larger world and
as a starring vehicle for the two of them, it eventually was brought to
life after Lee's death and is impressive on many levels.  The second
film is 1983's Lone Wolf McQuade which features the one and only Chuck Norris as a iconoclastic Texas Ranger who faces off against Mr. Carradine's gun-running social-climber. Barbara Carrera and L.Q. Jones both show up, as does William Sanderson
in a small but excellent performance as a toady named Snow.  This is
brimming with testosterone and chest hair, in a good way.  Please let us
